Stefano Opens Up A Four Life Science Office In Munich
Stefano has worked with Ambitious People Group for over 2 years and is now taking the step to open up a new office in Munich for his brand Four Life Sciences. He tells us what it’s like to open up a new office.
What does recruitment mean to you?
“Recruitment is a supreme discipline in sales for me. In 2017 I left my sales job and worked in controlling for a year. I hated that job and was eager to get back into sales. I had no idea what recruiting was about and neither did I know what Life Sciences were. Basically I just wanted to get back into sales pretty bad. I felt confident in my skills at the time, however after two weeks with the Ambitious People Group I already realized that I had no clue what I was doing at my previous job.
And what do you like about working as a recruiter in the Life Sciences industry?
“Mostly I just really like to work in such a specific field. I’ve learned so much about the industry over the course of time, that now I know all the products that my candidates and clients are working with.“
What made you decide to open up your own office in Munich? And was it always your ambition to open your own office?
“Definitely not. I never thought about opening a new office and my only focus was earning money. However my manager Lars told me that helping people looked like second nature to me and that I should think about building a team of my own. I realized this was a unique chance to futher develop myself and decided to take this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
What advice would you give to a new recruiter who wants to follow in your footsteps?
“At a certain point you are going to ask yourself if you are ready for it. You are never going to be ready.”
What makes an office successful?
“I think the most important factors of a successful office are very high standards, genuine teamwork and a healthy dose of competition. This is exactly what the environment in Frankfurt looks like and I want to apply the same principals to the new office in Munich.”
Why is it interesting for the brand to open another German office?
“Grow, grow, grow. That’s actually one of our company quotes, because there are always opportunites for growth. Four Life Sciences is doing well in Germany and we already work with candidates and companies in Munich as well. By opening up a new office there, we will be able to expand this market even further and decrease the distance between us and our clients.“
